Distributor completes comprehensive line-up of crop establishment tools

  • Opico has added two key brands to its range of tillage equipment. By taking on the distribution of Ovlac ploughs and Alpego Power harrows, drills, rotary cultivators and flail toppers, the Lincs-based company now offers a comprehensive line-up to cater for all approaches to crop establishment.

Located in northern Spain, Ovlac has been building ploughs for over 75 years and today is the country’s largest manufacturer of soil-engaging equipment. Mouldboard ploughs remain the firm’s flagship product and Ovlac is regarded as something of a specialist in shallow inversion tillage with a range of ploughs built specifically for that growing market.

Alpego’s range of cultivation equipment naturally compliments Ovlac’s offering. Best known for its power-harrows and drills, the Italian company has been specialising in one-pass crop establishment for over 30 years, but was originally established as “Pegoraro” Pegoraro Agricultural Construction in 1946 by Vittorio Pegoraro and remains within the family today.

Opico’s takeover of the distribution of Ovlac and Alpego equipment in the UK will mean improved technical and spare parts back-up as well as additional marketing support for the existing dealer network for both brands.

At the Cereals event in June the company will have standard and shallow Ovlac ploughs on display as well as a full line-up of Alpego equipment. A selection of products from both manufacturers will also be on display at the Royal Highland and Royal Welsh shows as well as a host of regional events.
